The Somerset Fund

The Somerset Fund brings together local businesses and families who are passionate about Somerset and helps them change lives, together. We’ll make it easy and rewarding to give locally, and help you share your skills and expertise to strengthen local charities.

In short, we’ll help you do good, better.

Your donation will be boosted by an incredible 50% through matched funding, meaning your giving makes an even greater impact.

You can choose to support one of our five Somerset districts, or support the whole county; it’s up to you. Our grants fund a wealth of difference causes, from parent and toddler groups, to mental health charities and homeless shelters. Supporters can take part in:
